After a year of solo fun on Washington Avenue, the Pedal Party bike finally got the sister she had always wanted. Now with twice the fun available to Houston, it was time to throw a party and christen the pedal-powered 16-passenger bikes. This past Saturday, 2000 Edwards Street was the place to be.
So what did all our adoring fans get to enjoy? Well, we’re glad you asked. Between the music being spun by Special K from 104 KRBE, the free rides on the PP, and the free beer from Saint Arnold Brewing Company and the Yard Sale Brewing Company, our fans were made to feel special. Thanks to Doggie Style Hot Dogsand Zilla Street Eats, no one went hungry while they hung out in our Secret Lair, better known as Pedal Party World Headquarters.
Of course, this christening party would not be complete without champagne, speeches, and the big name reveal. Following a wonderful “thank you for coming out” speech from owner Gene Landry, he and partner Kelly Anderson christened the party bikes in honor of their grandmothers. We now present to you the “Ardis Belle” and the “Ina Marie;” may their tap never run dry and their riders never fatigue.
With names in place, we sent the beer bikes out on their first formal race. While the kids were out on their play date together, the rest of the crowd waited for the second most important announcement of the days: the names of the door prize winners. Congrats to our winners and many thanks to Liberty Station Bar and Sawyer Park Bar & Restaurant for donating gift certificates. And once again thank you to everyone that came to the Pedal Party Christening Event. We had a blast.
